The only "drag" on the atmosphere here is that it can get extremely packed at night. It almost doesnít matter the night, there will generally be a good sized crowd at deschutes after 7pm. Even with the crowds that will happen, Deschutes is well worth going to. They have a good amount of their own taps available at any time. It is usually never a problem getting a hold of a bartender when needed. The food is very good. You can get a lot of different things off their food menu and Iíve yet to have something bad. Deschutes is pretty much in my do-not-miss places when Iím in Portland.

Enormous brewpub, that still seems to be packed with people most of the time. Thereís a kind of an American cabin feel to the interior, that is still very slick and refined. Has a nice range of taps and bottles, but nothing too surprising or extraordinary. Food is quite good. Service is ok, but mostly makes one feel as yet a number in the never ending line. Not one of the musts in PDX, but by no means a place to avoid. Decent value.

Awesome stop in portland. Typical brewpub but more polished and with a sweet copper brewing facility within. Most of their food incorporates their beer in some form or fashion. All their beers in tap and a couple bonus ones that are unique to the brewpub.

I went here twice while visiting Portland twice. It has that standard restaurant-oriented brewpub feel, but the beer far surpasses any Rock Bottom Iíve tried. Still this is a weaker spot in Portland. This would be the shining pride of any normal town, but Portlandís awesomeness subsides some of theirs. They have a lot of beers, but only about half are worth anything. This is just another place you have to check out in Portland.

The Portland Deschutes Pub is beautiful, they spent a lot of money on this place and so far have been rewarded with a wait every night Iíve tried to go. The main downside here is parking, itís the Pearl and as such you must park at least 32 miles away from your destination, despite that itís a great place. They have all the usuals on tap and usually something interesting as well, last time I was in they had the new 2009 release of Mirror Mirror and a 2005 release, it was fun to compare the two. The service is, well, hard to rate. Sometimes I get a great waiter that is attentive and friendly, other times they are surly and donít actually wait on you. Last time I was in the bar I waited 25 minutes for the waiter to come back to me after I told him I wanted something, he never showed so I paid my tab and left. I was going to buy several bottles and order a keg, oh well.

Visited December 11 2013. Abyss on nitro tap was great but other beers quite average. Seems to be quite popular place.

Dinner on a Saturday night = one crowded joint. Luckily grabbed a small table in the bar section to throw back a couple before our table was ready. Vintage Black Butte as the specialty tap with a couple good cask offerings. Sadly the Mirror Mirror blew before I could get around to a snifter...those are the breaks. Anyway, ambiance was pretty cool - the wood carvings are amazing to look at it - just a bit too crowded to be a í5í. Service was acceptable if a bit slow - but pleasant, which is always good. Beer selection was quite impressive - about 18-20 taps and enough variety to accommodate just about anyone. Food was a slight disappointment - only 1 out of 4 people really liked what they got, and the prices arenít particularly cheap. Overall a good visit, though if I donít make it back, I wonít be too upset...

The brewery I bet is much nicer down in Bend. As a place to grab a drink or eat, forget it. Deschutes has been consumed by the Pearl. Between the overpriced food, trite wooden animal statues and overhead beams, the bar area is always packed with frat boys cum corporate whores and their biddies. Such a disappointment.

I have generally good feelings towards this place though it doesnít exactly wow me. Slightly upscale feel in an upscale part of town. Prices are high though somewhat understandable. I prefer to grab a seat in the bar area rather than get a table. The food is quite good but definitely pricy though what do you expect. Thankfully the pub always has a handful of exclusive beers and I find their cask beers always taste really good. Overall worth hitting up.
